A new partner

I met him last week. He is very patient, but he does not say much of anything.

I’ve always enjoyed playing Scrabble although I’ve never been a top notch player. Robert usually beat me even though he was not a very good speller. It was irritating.

But now I have Al. He plays Scrabble at about the same level I do. He wins some and I win some. Our scores are within a few points. He lets me take as long as I want to figure out my next word. I’ve even left the room and had a snack with no complaints from him.

I think Al has a dictionary hidden away somewhere. I don’t use a dictionary – that’s my family rule.

It is a little awkward playing Scrabble on my Kindle but I am sure I will get used to it. I’ve decided that I’d better limit my games to one a day. This could get addicting.

Well I'm glad Al doesn't complain when you go for a snack - that's very civilized of him. I think I'd like to try crossword puzzles in that way. Don's aunt used to always carry a crossword book with her when she traveled - she would have loved the kindles. If she would have been able to embrace the internet it would have been fun to play scrabble with her over the miles - but she never liked not being face to face with people when she "talked"

You can't play Scrabble over the miles on a Kindle. You can play with someone else in the room if you pass the device back and forth. It would be neat if it worked long distance.

you can probably play on a pc, on the web, but if you don't have a laptop you can't sit in your favorite chair with your favorite cat on your shoulder...
